The polycarbonate market will register a CAGR of almost 5% by 2023

NEW YORK, March 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — About this market

The automotive industry is among the major end-users of polycarbonates. High fuel cost and fluctuating fuel prices are the key factors behind the change in consumer preference from traditional passenger cars to fuel-efficient and lightweight cars. Automotive manufacturers are increasingly using polycarbonate plastics in the manufacture of automotive components. Owing to their lightweight design, high transparency, and excellent impact resistance, polycarbonates are replacing conventional materials and playing a key role in increasing fuel economy and decreasing carbon dioxide emissions. Stringent government norms to reduce greenhouse gas emission, carbon dioxide emission, and other harmful pollutants are also fueling the demand for fuel efficient and light vehicles. Therefore, companies in the US market have started using lightweight materials such as polycarbonates to make vehicles lightweight and fuel-efficient. The rising demand for such lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicles is fueling the consumption of polycarbonates, resulting in the growth of the global polycarbonate market. Technavio’s analysts have predicted that the polycarbonate market will register a CAGR of almost 5% by 2023.

Market Overview

High demand for polycarbonates from China and US
China and the US are among the leading consumers of polycarbonates in construction, automotive, electrical and electronics, food packaging, and healthcare industries. The rise in the number of ageing populations in China has led to an infrastructural growth of healthcare facilities and medical equipment. Therefore, the growth of healthcare sector along with the rise in the ageing population will drive the demand for polycarbonate in construction materials and medical devices as well.

Fluctuations in crude oil prices

Fluctuations in crude oil prices act as a major threat to the global polycarbonate market. Since the major raw material used in the production of polycarbonate, bisphenol A, is petroleum-derived fluctuations in crude oil prices affect its price. The high prices of raw materials are a major concern for polycarbonate manufacturers. The fluctuations in crude oil prices negatively impact the final cost of polycarbonates thereby affecting the profit margins of the manufacturers.
